BUCKTOWN — Good defense hasn’t exactly been Pottstown’s rally cry this fall. Allowing a very generous 409 yards and 38 points a game certainly lends itself to being analyzed, criticized and, at times, ostracized. Even more so when there haven’t been a whole heck of a lot of issues on the other side of the ball.
So, down to their final game, with the opportunity to finish with the program’s first non-losing season in 10 long years, the Trojans played ... defense.
They buckled down, not under, and came up with their own share of big defensive plays Thursday morning to hold off host Owen J. Roberts, 26-21, in the 53rd renewal of the their Thanksgiving Day series.

  2. Vespa Tour in Florence. Have fun riding a vespa along the scenic and peaceful roads on the Tuscan hills. An alternative way to admire the sights of Chianti, wrapped in the perfumes of the Tuscan countryside and the sound of the working farms. You can join the tour every day and enjoy this experience together with our escorts (speaking Italian and English), who will be showing you around small medieval villages situated in the heart of Tuscany. Those who do not feel confident enough about riding on their own can opt for riding with one of our expert escorts. The tour along the Chianti hills lasts all day. You will be stopping in a renowned farm for a wine tasting and a delicious lunch. A valid driving licence is required and you must be at least 18 years old to ride a vespa, or 13 years old to be a passenger. If you opt for the endouble vespa with your own passenger you will pay 207 euros for the two of you! Florence hotel
